916. Equality

Poor Equality,
I really feel sorry for you.
In the morning
You are mercilessly
Avoided by others’
Clever responsibility.
At noon
You are compelled
To dance with others’
Insincerity and futility.
In the evening
Absurdity and impossibility
Come into your broken heart
Only to destroy
Your entire existence.
